Prediction:

Brady Quinn makes his first NFL start and while it’s tempting to go against a young quarterback, the Broncos haven’t offered many reasons to back them this season. Denver’s defense has been absolutely shredded through the air and on the ground, and won’t have top cornerback Champ Bailey again this week as he continues to nurse an injured groin. If the Browns can get Jamal Lewis and the running game going, it’ll help Quinn relax and take what the Broncos give him in the passing game. On the flip side, Cleveland’s defense has played better of late, although they’re coming off a rough game against Baltimore. Denver’s offense can put points on the board, but they’ve also struggled. Expect a close, high scoring game, but we’ll give the nod to Quinn in his first start. We predict the Browns over the Broncos 27-24.
